Hi Linda - I was thinking and sending warm thoughts your way during your hiatus! Wonderful news that they can provide care at home for hubby. It's much less stressful for him! Having home caregivers will also give you short breaks and mental health support during his care.

I'm definitely in!!

xxoo

Just back from a scrappy cruise and here's the one layout I did that was not class-related, just done for fun.
My grandmother a long, long time ago...

(Thanks so much for hosting this, Linda. Hopefully, I can be a little less MIA around here...)

Peggy - A fabulous creation! Which scrap cruise did you take? I have one on my bucket list, but think we need to do Spain first and hopefully this year. If I can get this together, I'll be able to spend a week traveling VIP with a group to watch the Vuelta (the Spanish version of Tour de France and the last of third leg of GC which is similar to the last race and hopes of winning the Triple Crown at the Preakness. One of the stages ends in the town of Acebo, which is ground zero of our family tree back in 692 AD. We'll also be able for Hubby to see his daughter after 20+ years.

Linda - busy doing tag cards for the girls at the office for Administrative Professional Day next Wednesday. I'm planning on scrapping ALL weekend.

Thanks for your sweet words, Linda!

The cruise was a 9-day out of Miami, stopping at Labadee, Aruba, Curacao, Bonaire and then back home. I do mean to scrap a lot of the pics I took; let's hope that it gets done, lol!!!!

Your plans to Spain to watch the race and then to visit your ancestral home sounds wonderful. Even more wonderful will be your plans for your husband; fingers crossed that it all comes to be!

Hugs,
Peggy

Most of the embellies are made so now to keep look for the pic and select the background paper. My die set arrived yesterday, but can't use it until I find the pic

May be faster to see if I scanned and saved it to my photo drive.
